Pembina Pipeline Corporation Positions for Future Growth Through Acquisition of Land and Facilities in Alberta's Industrial

Pembina Pipeline Corporation Positions for Future Growth Through Acquisition 
of Land and Facilities in Alberta's Industrial Heartland 
CALGARY, Sept. 3, 2013 /CNW/ - Pembina Pipeline Corporation ("Pembina" or the 
"Company") (TSX: PPL; NYSE: PBA) announced today that it has acquired a site 
in the Alberta Industrial Heartland for approximately $20 million featuring a 
well-designed existing rail system and utility infrastructure to support the 
future development of rail, terminalling and storage facilities (the 
"Heartland Hub"). The Heartland Hub is a further build-out of Pembina's larger 
Nexus terminal ("PNT"), servicing crude oil and diluent customers for 
terminalling, storage and rail. 
The Heartland Hub will be a receipt and delivery terminal designed to capture 
opportunities to expand services for Pembina's customers. The site is in close 
proximity to major oil sands pipeline rights-of-way, existing crude oil and 
petrochemical infrastructure and Pembina's Redwater site. It is expected to 
provide interconnectivity via pipeline and rail to downstream refining markets 
and enable Pembina to offer upstream and downstream customers access to 
merchant storage and other complementary midstream services. 
Key features of the acquisition include: 


    --  232 acres of well-developed industrial land;
    --  in excess of 5,000 linear feet of rail track, currently
        serviced by CN Rail;
    --  160 acres of adjacent, existing Pembina lands, which can be
        developed for future merchant storage and rail expansions;
    --  1,280 acres of Pembina salt rights in close proximity to
        support future cavern development; and
    --  the ability to access over four million barrels per day of
        existing and future oil sands and conventional crude oil supply
        through various current and potential pipeline interconnection
        (s).

The Heartland Hub is an integral part of the broader PNT which interconnects 
Pembina's terminalling infrastructure located in the Edmonton, Redwater and 
Fort Saskatchewan areas. PNT provides unparalleled access to the diverse crude 
oil grades produced in western Canada. In addition, it is connected to 
condensate (diluent) transported on third-party as well as Pembina pipeline 
systems, including imported pipeline and rail supplies. The access and 
connectivity of PNT provides the broadest array of crude oil and diluent 
services available to Pembina's customer base.

At the same time, Pembina has entered into a multi-year agreement with a major 
North American refiner for the provision of services to load crude oil 
railcars within the existing infrastructure at PNT. This service will commence 
immediately. The agreement provides up to 40,000 barrels per day of various 
crude grades, and capitalizes on the full service offering of pipeline, 
storage and rail infrastructure at PNT.

"Pembina's purchase of this property in the Heartland area and our agreement 
with a major North American refiner demonstrates the growing demand for 
terminalling services and the business model being built-out by Pembina's 
Midstream business. PNT's location and connections to take-away pipeline 
infrastructure and its ability to offer enhanced crude oil and diluent 
services allow us continue to provide customers an attractive and expanding 
suite of services and midstream capabilities" said Bob Jones, Pembina's Vice 
President, Midstream. "We're also excited about the benefits to our other 
businesses: true to our vertical integration strategy, we see synergies 
between the midstream services which will be available at PNT and our 
Conventional Pipelines, Gas Services, and Oil Sands & Heavy Oil businesses."

The acquisition of the Heartland Hub was funded by Pembina's existing credit 
facilities.
